John Wilbanks: Let’s pool our medical data

When you're getting medical treatment, or taking part in medical testing, privacy is important; strict laws limit what researchers can see and know about you. But what if your medical data could be used -- anonymously -- by anyone seeking to test a hypothesis? John Wilbanks wonders if the desire to protect our privacy is slowing research, and if opening up medical data could lead to a wave of health care innovation.

Keywords: Cancer, Informed Consent, Teasing Signals out of noise

    Our research requires what i call the community of cooperation. You need cooperation between the scientists studying it, the clinicians studying it and the patients with the disease. This is why we have patient advocacy groups. They ask their members to participate in research. Research is a way to create care for that particular condition.
